UK Gutter Maintenance Races Ahead!

Paul Blair has had a lifelong love affair with horses so when the opportunity came along to give a retired racehorse a home for life he jumped at the chance. He became the proud owner of Haut De Gamme (winner of 11 races & £202,000 prize money).

“Ginge” as he was affectionately known soon became a part of the Blair family, Kathy started to learn to ride and several happy years were spent by all. Unfortunately a tragic accident in the field cut short their life together, but the bond they had shared made Paul & Kathy decide they would love to give another ex-racehorse the chance to enjoy the same care as their beloved “Ginge”.

Enter Orki des Aigles (winner of 2 races & £27,000 prize money). His career was cut short by a severe tendon injury and at one point it looked as though he would be put to sleep as the vet thought he wouldn’t even be able to be ridden again let alone race. The Blair’s felt that they wanted to give him a chance and happily he has now made a full recovery and is ridden quietly round the roads.

Shortly after homing “Orki”, King of Confusion (winner of 3 races & £17,500 prize money) was in desperate need of a home, Paul & Kathy to the rescue again!

Although it was always the intention to have retired horses, Paul has been helping Diane Russell (nickname of Rusty) with racehorses that are on a holiday from the racing scene and when her own horse Maska Pony “Ryan” was showing signs of wanting to return to the track they decided they would register as owners and give him the chance to show what he could do. As Kathy is a big part of the support network with the horses she suggested that UKGM sponsor “Ryan” as it is a great way of advertising the company to a range of people that possibly haven’t thought about the need for gutter maintenance.

Maska Pony has won 5 races over hurdles but Paul & Rusty decided to try him at flat racing so he had his first race at Haydock on the 20th July 2012. He ran a creditable 4th considering he was left a little flat footed out of the stalls. He did however look very smart in his UKGM paddock sheet!! The girl that looks after him ‘Kay’ suits her UKGM uniform too and hopefully he will be in the winner’s enclosure flying the flag for UK Gutter Maintenance LTD shortly!
